And had TheSun.co.uk’s homepage redirecting to the story.
However the new-times.co.uk website couldn’t handle the traffic from TheSun.co.uk and went down, so currently TheSun.co.uk is redirecting to the @LulzSec Twitter feed.

We will keep you updated as we learn more and events unfold…
Update 1: We also forgot to mention, LulzSec claim to have access to News International and The Sun’s emails and is planning to release them shortly.
Update 2 – 00:14: It seems the News International server admins are fighting for control, TheSun.co.uk no longer redirects to the LulzSec Twitter feed and instead returns an error processing the request – others News International sites are also returning similar errors.
Update 3 – 00:22: The News International website – NewsInt.co.uk is now down also, not confirmed if from DDoS, LulzSec or because Admins have taken it down.
Update 4 – 00:24: TheTimes.co.uk is now down due to Namesever failures! – Tipped by our own @ajlanghorn
Update 5 – 00:28: The NewsInt nameservers have been killed completely now. All News Int sites using ns0/ns1.newsint.co.uk are down.
Update 6 – 00:42: @LulzSec has called it a night…
Update 7 – 00:47: Woah! Blindsided apparently Rupert Murdoch is considering stepping down as CEO of NewsCorp
